I’m right there with you. It’s easy for me to look at the prominent, successful careers some of my friends from high school and college have pursued and … compare and despair. And wonder what might have been if I didn’t have ADHD, or if I had been diagnosed and treated earlier in life. But I have a job that I like and I don’t want for anything important, so all is well. Still, it’s helpful to recognize myself in a post like yours.
